The last time I shot this I did it from shooting inside the house looking through a window. This time I am outside shooting.
The other reason I did this again is the weather was incredible at my home today. We woke up to 50º F and it got to about 69º F at the hottest today. Wonderful time to just sit and watch a bird feeder.
First I must say I can only manual focus and I never really got the focus perfect with the Fuji. I would approximate where the hummingbird would be whereas with the Nikon I was able to auto focus.
This is the actual setup with the Fuji. The only difference is the flashes were switched out with the Nikon system.
I believe the wings are more frozen with the Neewer flash than with the Nikon due to flash duration.
Now to make up for the ability to lock in on focus I used a high aperture with the Fuji. To do this I just rotated the Nikon to Fuji converter. I can only guess as the aperture, but most likely around ƒ/16 or higher.
